This guitar is an exact replica of the favorite guitar of the legendary maestro Pepe Habichuela to mark the 60th anniversary since he started playing the guitar. The original dates from 1986, and all details of the original have been meticulously replicated with the exception of the original wooden tuning pegs (this replica has "machined" Planetary pegs for improved ease of tuning). This is a true flamenco guitar, built with a spruce top, cypress back and sides, best ebony for the fretboard and a Honduran cedar neck. Its lightweight build give it a noticeably immediate feel which is also very comfortable to play, especially for a longscale. It has a ringing sound but is still nicely percussive at the same time. Felipe has done an amazing job at capturing the sound of this vintage Conde. This guitar has explosive, and brilliant sound. This is guitar #7 of a limited edition of only 25 guitars that are being built in special collaboration with Pepe Habichuela as is attested by the label, which bears the signatures of both Felipe Conde and Pepe Habichuela.
